Speakers:
 
Kendra Barkoff Lamy, Senior Vice President, SKDKnickerbocker
 
Kendra Barkoff Lamy has worked at the highest levels of government and is an expert in crisis communications, bringing a decade of experience to the intersection of public policy, media and politics on behalf of our corporate and nonprofit clients.
 
At SKDKnickerbocker, Lamy specializes in helping victims of sexual harassment and assault. She leads the team that works on the groundbreaking TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund initiatives and works with individual women who come forward and want to share their stories on their own terms. In 2019, she was named one of the Top Women in PR by PR News.
 
Lamy joined SKDKnickerbocker from the Office of Vice President Joe Biden, where she served as Press Secretary for four and a half years. During her time with Vice President Biden, Lamy was the primary on-the-record spokesperson, leading the office’s rapid-response operation and managing communications strategy. In addition, she helped to develop and launch the 1is2many and the ItsOnUs initiatives, two administration campaigns aimed at changing the cultural norms around domestic violence, dating abuse and sexual harassment.
 
Prior to her job in the White House, Lamy was the Deputy Communications Director and Press Secretary at the U.S. Department of Interior. Among her many responsibilities, Lamy led the rapid response operation for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. She also helped manage the communications activities around myriad complex conservation and environment issues within the department’s portfolio.
 
Prior to her work in the Obama Administration, Lamy was Sen. Bob Casey’s Press Secretary and also served as a communications aide for Sen. Dick Durbin.
